Great support with a SMOOTH Cushioned ride. Stepped up to the Transcend 4 after years of loving the Adrenaline. On my second pair. My favorite Brooks so far! Worth the extra $$

Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

I have an old plantar injury and over-probate, not too much road running at my age these days, but it's great for workout/walking etc. Snug in heel and arch with plenty of room in the toe box. I'm on my 3rd pair of the 4, with many many of previous models. Highly recommend!

Well built, but too cushy and not like ASICS Kayanos

By Kayvan

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

Seem like a solid built, cushy shoe, but definitely not for me. I've been running in ASICS Kayano for 10+yes, and thought I'd switch as the design changes over the past few years have not been to my liking. After reading lots of reviews that runners liked these better than their Kayano I thought I'd give them a whirl. I'm more on the flat footed side and immediately these shoes felt a bit uncomfortable in the arch. I tried to go for a run despite the discomfort due to RRS great return policy. Within 5 minutes had knee and ankle pains I never get...sent them back. It's too bad as I wanted to like them but back to my Kayanos which still feel great!

    Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

    Attempting to continue running with degrading meniscus and post-ACL reconstruction, I shifted from Asics Nimbus (series) to Transcend 4. The Transcend facilitated enough change in joint alignment and movement in knee to actually decrease the discomfort and pain while increasing my mileage. Winner! The ride in these shoes is pleasurable and durability appears good. Oh, and the laces on these are the best - I have never had them come loose, never. Can't rave enough about these shoes. Thank you Brooks!

    Amazing fit and feel straight out of the box. The cushioning on landing and take off is off the charts. This shoe propels you on take off..
    I shaved my running times by 30 seconds.. 56 Year old runner doing 45-50 miles a week. These shoes have eliminated sore joints and tired muscles..

    Brooks Transcend 4

    By William

    from undisclosed

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

    Have to give the Transcend 4 a 4 star rating because, even though I have to return them, Brooks did some great things with this shoe. First, it's very cushioned and stable. The toe box is roomy (which has been a problem with many of my recent shoes). Unfortunately, in my case, I have an irritated peroneal tendon. That injury doesn't work well for this shoe. The guiderail seems to create a firm spot right where I don't need it. So, 4 stars for the shoe overall even though it doesn't work for me.

    So far, I am really loving this shoe. Switched from ASICS Kayano after 20+ years. Even tried the ASICS Cumulus. These have great room and cushion. Plenty of toe-box. Surprised how comfortable these are.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

    Best running shoe I have ever owned. I have been a loyal Asics fan for many years and I was reluctant to change to this shoe, but I am very happy I did. Fit, comfort, and durability are amazing. I am on my second pair after putting on 400 miles on first pair. The wear on the first pair after 400 miles was not that bad especially compared to the Kayano I had been using for several years. Great shoe!!

    A change did me good.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

    I have been running in Brooks for something like 12 years, and exclusively Glysterin for the las 6. Lately I had been developing pain around my achilles region of my right leg and thought a change would do me good. Turns out I was right. The added stability and guidance of the Transcend shoe has alleviated any injury issue I had been experiencing and I'm back to running pain free. In addition these shoes are light weight, offer good breathability, and possess a pleasant bouncy feel.

    Great Shoe

    By Roy

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

    I bought this shoe based on the reviews on the Road Runner Sports website. I have been running on New Balance shoes for quite a while. I have large (US size 14) feet, with a C width and high arches so, New Balance has been my go to shoe for fit. The reviews convinced me that the Transcend 4 might be a viable option and I wanted to try a shoe with more cushioning. Also, I had 90 days to return the shoes if I didn't like them. Well, I am ecstatic that I made the switch. The Transcend 4 is a great shoe, despite the lack of narrow widths! I think I have a new go to running shoe.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

    The first time buying these for my husband who is not a runner but just wanted a supportive, highly cushioned shoe for long walks. He has a wide toe box and I was worried this brand might not fit him, but he says they are fine and no problems. He is very pleased with the arch support and cushioning of this shoe. It is getting harder to find dark/black running shoes that are not bright. These would be perfect in appearance if the bottom was black instead of white, in my opinion.

    I haver been running in Kayano'so for as long as I can remember. Until they came out with the 23. Narrow toe box and not as much fore front cushioning. Someone turned me on to the Brooks Transcend 4. They are amazing. Ran a half in them last week. No legal pain at all. Just bought my second pair.

      Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

      Great cushioning and stability control. I'm on the heavier side (5'8" 190 lbs.) and over-pronate pretty severely; running about 40 miles/week right now. I had the first generation of the Transcend, which I loved, then tried a couple different Hoka models, which were just too narrow. Returned home to Brooks for the Transcend 4, and it's a great upgrade to the original--it doesn't feel like it's trying to correct my pronation, it just lets me run naturally and still offers excellent support, and the cushioning has been amazing for long road runs. Fit is great, although I have to play with the lacing a little bit or it's really easy to cinch the laces too tight at the top and squeeze the top of my foot/ankle, but my heel sits firmly in the shoe and there's no sliding around. The top of the shoe on the inside of the ankle may come up a little too high for some--it took me a little getting used to, but it seems to have broken in or at least doesn't bother me anymore. The shoe feels a lot lighter on my feet than the weight/size would seem to indicate. And, like another reviewer mentioned, I don't normally buy running shoes based on the look/color, but it never hurts to look good while you're running and the red/blue "superman" coloring is pretty cool. I'll probably buy another pair of these when this one wears out--hopefully they'll be discounted by then!

      Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

      The shoes looked better to me in person than online and I was pleasantly suprised. I am slightly flat footed and when I first put them on I felt like the were poking me a bit in the arch and was ready to stick them back in the box. I wore them for 20 minutes in the house and changed my mind as my foot sunk in. They have very strong stability and excellent cushioning particularly in the heels. It feels like you are rolling your foot straight and slightly downhill. When I actually ran in them they felt awesome. They are now my favorites and better than my kayano 23. I am running 15-20 miles a week and I am 205lbs. I also wear them crosstraining at orange theory and the stability works well.
